Detecting the symptoms of brake failure

  • Listen to your brakes. Brakes that squeal or grind aren’t just a pain to listen to. They’re a serious problem, as that squeak or grind might be your brake pads wearing thin (and the grinding could mean you’ve worn your way down to the rotors). If you hear a clicking sound, the spring mechanism holding your brake pad in place may have broken or come loose. And if you hear a pulsing sound, you might have a warped/warped drum or rotor. So keep an ear out for any abnormal braking sounds.
  • Don’t ignore your antilock brake system (ABS) light when it pops up on your dashboard. It could mean there’s a wiring or electrical problem.
  • If your wheel gets the shakes every time you hit the brakes, this could be another sign that you’ve got a warped drum or rotor (which might need to be repaired or replaced).
  • Be wary of excess drag or pull while you accelerate. Rust may have built up on your emergency brakes, which leaves them engaged even when the lever’s down.
  • Check your stopping distance. After awhile, you get to know your car like an old friend. And if your car needs more space to stop than you’re used to, you may need a brake adjustment, new brake linings, or a replacement power booster.
  • You could feel your car pulling from one side or the other if you have frozen brakes, brakes that are out of alignment, or fluid leaking on the brake pads or shoes.
  • If your brake pedal seems soft or spongy, there may be excess air in the brakes. Your mechanic can release the air through “brake bleeding.” Don’t worry, it’s painless while at Monaghan’s Auto Repair.
